I find it necessary to go back to the pond scum theory of life,to get universal in time as well as having a common self to think of.

We started having physical senses, that gives us consciousness.First after that was not "love thy brother" the way we use it today.It was love thy brother raw or cooked for several hundred million years.

If I study all of the survival mechanisms developed and discarded by all of the creatures of all of the history of life.I get that ,being able to respond to our enviornment (response ability) is much better than just watching. So we got this urge to exist because it stimulates our chemical part somehow.The rest should be just getting more and more of the best available stimulants without being a problem for one of the other fun seekers.Responsible behavior works well for all concerned.And is very exciting!!
